Baker, Eva L.; Linn, Robert L.; Herman, Joan L.; Koretz, Daniel
This document presents standards for educational accountability systems that represent models of practice derived from three perspectives: research knowledge, practical experience, and ethical considerations. These standards should be conceived of as targets for state and local systems and as criteria to judge proposed models of accountability development. The 22 standards outlined in this report are grouped into these categories: (1) standards on system components; (2) testing standards; (3) stakes; (4) public reporting formats; and (5) evaluation.
